Rear Addition + full interior gut + front porch rebuild

My wife and I cannot say enough good things about Dale and the Wolfhound team, truly. They are friendly, cordial, and on time on site everyday at 7 am when working here and always leave a clean work site before leaving at the end of the day.

We had been trying to get our renovation off the ground for a year and went through 2 contractors and about 10 interviews before meeting Dale. Before him we were definitely losing faith that we'd ever be able to get this done and our "forever home" dream was going to die.

Right off the bat, the thing that is apparent about Dale is that he treated this project and our home as if it were his own, it was very personal for him. The level of care and consideration he had for us throughout as well as being accommodating to a few circumstances we put in front of him (we decided to live in the basement while the renos were going on above us to save a few dollars) has made this process far easier and as stress free as possible - I think we can agree no renovation is "stress free" but having someone who recognizes this and is empathetic to that point, decreases that stress tenfold.

From day one he referred to the project as "a partnership" and we've felt like partners working toward the same goal throughout. It was never once a Dale vs Us situation, even the most uncomfortable conversations were easily and calmly discussed over a beer, pizza or cup of tea (Dales favourite).

Another thing we have to say about Dale, which we didn't find with anyone else was his honesty. Everyone we met tried to 'win' the business by telling us this was an 8-week job open and shut.

Dale came into our initial meeting and said "look I can tell you 8 weeks like everyone else to try and win your business but I'd rather be realistic and honest with you and then we're on the same page and if we come in early everyone is happy". At the initial meeting Dale said to us to expect 5-6 months total timeline for the project but he would aim to get it done sooner if possible. Due to a few hangups around appliances, finishing materials delayed by COVID and sub trade errors that we brought in on our own, the job took right to the max time frame, but barring those delays from our end we would have likely been done sooner.

Regarding budget, we ended up pushing about $20-30k over our initial planned budget with all of that being from adjustments and upgrades my wife and I made along the way, not under estimations from Dale - he was truly right on the money (pun intended) the whole way through.

Any of the "budget breakers" that came up along the way were typically averted in the most economical way. Also, regarding his budget planning, in the grand scheme of quotes we received he came in about $30k cheaper than the next closest quote and $150k cheaper than the most ridiculous quote we received (which included $2000 toilets haha). So we've really felt like he understands the true costs of materials and labour.

No one believes a review that is 100% glowing and we know those are few and far between so, the only area that we felt needed some improvement was communication and keeping us in the loop in the earlier phases of the project. We had email and text message conversations, but Dale is a hands on business owner and his focus is providing the best product/end result, that sometimes came at the sacrifice of clear communication and missed messages in our correspondence we were looking for a response on. Dale is the first to admit this and after discussions on the matter he did make significant strides to ensure we had regular meetings and check ins.

Kitchen cabinet door adjustment

Dale installed new kitchen cabinet doors for us last year, and they required a minor adjustment which he took care of today. Once again we’re very happy with his work! You can count on Dale for his integrity and high quality of work. He genuinely wants you to be happy with the project and we are! Thanks again!

Roof Extension

My roof shingles needed to be replaced and the roof needed to be extended to fully cover my porch.

Hi .
This was a challenging project but we love to be challenged.
Hand cut roofs are not common anymore so it was great to get back to our roots and get this done for you.
Thank you

We had a deck built in the backyard

Dale not only provided us with a very competitive price but him and his coworker showed up on time, they were very conscientious about their work and they made every effort to meet our timeline. It was a real please to deal with them and I would without a doubt recommend their workmanship.

Interlock front walkway & Construction of wooden stairs

The Wolfhound crew was very responsive and flexible to the work we needed done, and did a great job troubleshooting an unforeseen issue with the front of our house - they ended up not only doing a great job on the new walkway and stairs but they also corrected the bad job someone else did on the front of our house years earlier! It took about a month or two from booking to getting the work done, but we booked in peak season, weren't picky about the timing, and they finished all work in a week as scheduled despite the unforeseen issue. They were reasonably priced and the best quote we got for the job. Right after installation, one small spot of the interlock had settled incorrectly and they came back and fixed it promptly, now it's all good. The front of the house looks SO MUCH BETTER NOW! Very happy to have chosen them and will keep them in mind for future projects.

Installed new kitchen cupboard doors.

Dale and his colleague were prompt, arrived when they said they would (to measure and to install), and even though this was a relatively small job they were able to accommodate our request. There was a glitch at the manufacturer’s end and one door had to be re-ordered. Dale wanted to hear from us as soon as the replacement arrived, and made time to complete the job at no extra charge. All doors are perfectly installed with attention to detail, and they look great!

UpperDeck 5’ x 15’

Dale and his crew were digging for footings as soon as Spring frost-line would allow, after patiently waiting for permit approval. The handsome build of our louvred deck was up in no time and all cleared away for our use.
We have highest regard for Wolfhounds!!

Repair damaged drywall ceiling

Dale and his team removed and replaced the damaged drywall ceiling due to water damage and painted. His team was very friendly, kept the rest of the house dust free and overall a pleasure to deal with. Would highly recommend them for any construction projects no matter how big or small. The price was very reasonable as well.

Kitchen renovation, windows. doors, deck etc

Dale and his team were a pleasure to work with. He understood our needs and worked quickly and professionally. The site was always tidy at the end of the day and Dale was able to coordinate the various trades (electricity, windows, gas etc) so as to provide smooth seamless work. Dale is very flexible and was great at communicating with us on a day to day basis. I would not hesitate to use Dale again and recommend him highly.
